Donnelly College, located in the heart of Kansas City, Kansas, is an independent, coeducational, Catholic institution founded by the Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica and sponsored by the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. The College was established in 1949 to meet the needs of urban immigrants and the working class, with special focus on â€œthose who might not otherwise be served.â€ Today, Donnelly continues that tradition by providing access and affordable education within a culture that promotes student success and by serving as the regionâ€™s only federally designated Minority Serving Institution and Hispanic Serving Institution. Our community is proud of the rich racial and ethnic diversity of our students, staff and faculty and how that diversity supports our learning environment. Through a strong general education curriculum integrated with career-oriented majors, Donnelly College offers programs leading to bachelor and associate degrees and certificates.
